BUILDING BETTER BODIES FITNESS

Bakersfield's Premier Spin Studio, Circuit Training & Fitness Facility

 

 Joe is one the best things that ever happened to me. I have been working with Joe for two years and he has changed my life! I used to be a flabby lout who couldn't do one sit up! Now I have muscle and tone and feel so much better about myself. Joe is patient, VERY knowledgeable about the body, how it works, how to pace  your wants with your needs and is always very supportive and positive in his dealings with you. He is not only a great trainer, he is a great person too. I recommend him without any reservation whatsoever. He is a blessing.

I enjoyed the one on one attention, and the nature in which he handled our initial consultation. Joe is friendly, caring, and knowledgeable. Upon completing the consultation we went through a fun series of exercises to determine the best plan of attack to help me reach the goals we had just discussed. I'm excited to be working out again, and feel that I'm in good hands !

 I have to say that it's nice to meet a trainer that exemplifies a healthy lifestyle . His credentials and athletic background are impressive to say the least. I found him to be kind, understanding, compassionate and helpful. I would highly reccomend him to any and all who are looking to improve their level of fitness.

 I spent 3 months training with Joe to get in shape for my High School Re-union, and thanks to his motivation and skill I was able to drop 30 pounds and loved the way I looked. He's the best !

My wife and I have been with Joe for about a year and a half. He has helped us get back a lot of our strength and endurance that we have lost over the years. In addition to helping us, the experience with Joe has been fantastic. He is a wonderful person that treats his clients as both people and friends, something you don't see in the large companies.

I MET JOE 3 YEARS AGO WHEN I DECIDED TO DO THE MUD RUN.   HIS WORDS OF WISDOM AND ENCOURAGEMENT ALONG WITH HIS INCREDIBLE KNOWLEDGE IS WHAT PREPARED ME .   HE IS NOT ONLY ONE OF THE BEST TRAINERS AROUND BUT A ALSO A GENTLE SOUL.
THANKS TO HIS PATIENCE AND ENCOURAGEMENT I WAS ABLE TO GET IN THE BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE.
I RECOMMEND JOE TO ANYONE WHO IS SERIOUS ABOUT A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE AND NEEDS THAT LITTLE EXTRA PUSH .

 In 1996 I knew Joe Peterson as my indoor cycle instructor. Although our exchanges were limited, his passion & commitment to his students was undeniable. In 2001 Joe became my personal trainer and empowered me to meet my ideal weight. Joe made workouts, including weights & cardio, fun. In 2004 I was seriously ill, bed-bound, with malaria. Once I received permission from my physician to go outside, let alone exercise, Joe was one of the first persons whom I contacted. Joe enhanced my workout routine to meet my new physical needs while considering my delicate state. Today I live in Northern California with my wonderful husband (who can eat 10 tortillas in one sitting without it reflecting in his waistline), work as a social worker, and continue to live an active lifestyle. Joe possesses a unique ability to empower individuals to achieve their overall health goals that will last a lifetime.

Joe is the perfect personal trainer!  I have been going to him for two years and he has done wonders!  My workout is different every time I go to a session.  His prices are great. I highly recommend him.

I've had other trainers in the past and can say with confidence that Joe Petersen is an amazing trainer

He takes time to listen to your goals and helps craft a training session customized for you.

He's also fun to work out with. He knows how to push you and help motivate you for that one last push up, curl, sit up, or whatever else you are working on.

It's never to late to start working on your better body. I highly suggest you stop reading this recommendation and call Joe right now...

I found this place through Sheryce's Yelp review, and thought it'd be a great place to check out.

I equipped myself with water bottle, hair tie, and a friend. To my surprise, the registration table already offers water bottle and hair tie (and I'd assume Joe would be your friend too if you asked :). Joe is very friendly, offering my friend and I extra assistance due to our bicycle novice status. He helped us adjust the seats and taught us proper technique before beginning the session.

Then, the lights dimmed and the music began. The cycling class is like clubbing on stationary bikes! I had a blast dancing and cycling with the direction of Joe. I had a great work out, a pumped attitude, and a soar butt-- all for the steal of $5.

Thanks Joe!

$5 a class for what is undoubtedly one of the best workouts in town--SPINNING!  

Joe Petersen hosts, runs, and trains people for spin classes, bootcamps, and personal training.  He owns a cute little studio downtown, where the sweating goes down!  

I haven't been to the other classes, but I can vouch for spinning.  For five whole dollars you can rock out, sweat a ton, burn lots of calories, and have fun doing so.  It's intense, but you get used to it.    

Check it out if you want to try something different and switch up or start your workout routine.  For spinning, I do recommend you invest in some padded bike shorts.  They make all the difference...TRUST me

Joe Petersen is one of the best fitness trainers I've ever seen. He walks the walk and gets results...if you follow his lead!!  I've been exercising since 8th grade, 1968.  I've tried all kinds of programs to maintain my health and fitness over the years. If you work with him you'll get the results you want.

I knew that spin classes are a kick in the pants. I guess that is why my father in law wanted me to meet Joe Peterson and get motivated to get in shape. I met Joe with a great handshake after I have seen all the many awards and trophies. I knew that this guy knows what he is doing.  I saddled up and the music came on and the group that was there went to work. For only $5 you get to spin with Joe and get a great spin workout. The gym is small but really big in heart.
